R&D Robots / Hamster

Hamster is small, smart, indoor robot that can help you achieve your R&D objectives easily and quickly.

Our Hamsters come with Nimbus already on board.

Use Nimbus to implement your code easily using a variety of pre-configured ROS algorithms, and then you’re ready to move forward with your R&D project using full Cloud connectivity.

Hamster V7 allows you to implement and run R&D for indoor robots with vision-based applications (deep neural network).

It includes the following main sensors:​

  • 2D (360 degree) Lidar

  • Depth camera (Intel's realsense D345i)

  • IMU (inside the depth camera)

Available in 2 options:

  • Hamster V7-I equipped with Up Squared quad core tom with Intel's Myrid X Movidius chip.

  • Hamster V7-N equipped with Nvidia Jetson Xavier NX
